HP SmartMemory enables HP ProLiant Gen8 Server series to reliably identify and confirm that installed memory has passed the rigorous HP qualification and testing which means you are getting genuine HP Qualified Memory for both optimal and reliable performance. Verifies that your memory has been tested and performance tuned specifically on HP ProLiant Server series. Most third-party memory vendors simply don't do this or aren't capable of platform-level testing. HP SmartMemory is sourced from Tier 1 DRAM only suppliers. Extended memory performance features can be enabled through the system ROM because the memory has been authenticated. When used in conjunction with Systems Insight Manager (SIM), the SmartMemory enables fault prediction capabilities. If potential problems develop in one of the DIMMs, SIM lets you know in advance so you can have the DIMM replaced, before it fails, under warranty.
